Improved Indoor Air Quality
Central vacuum system, you have the power and versatility to make your home healthy for you and your family. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, “the air inside your home can be even more polluted than the outside air of most industrialized cities.” Since people spend an average of 90% of their time indoors, indoor air quality becomes a large issue, especially if you or anyone in your family suffers from allergies or asthma. One way to combat this problem and attack the harmful allergens and irritants is with a central vacuum system.
Reduce Allergy and Asthma Symptoms
With 20% of the population affected by allergies or asthma, it is important that you rid your home of these harmful irritants.1 Dustmites, pet dander, dust, mold, and pollen are the leading cause of indoor allergies. Keeping your carpets dry and cleaning your home with a central vacuum system will help rid you of these allergens.
A study conducted by the University of California-Davis School of Medicine2 states that use of a central vacuum system can greatly reduce allergy and asthma symptoms.
Nasal symptoms 47% improvement
Sleep symptoms 44% improvement
Eye symptoms 61% improvement
Protect Investments While Adding Value to Your Home
Don’t waste time and money on other vacuum cleaners when you can have a central vacuum system easily installed in your new or existing home with no heavy construction or remodeling. Not only does a central vacuum system add value, but it’s your first line of defense in protecting your investment in your home’s floor covering: rugs, carpet, stone, tile, wood, etc. A central vacuum system is a surprisingly economical investment that adds permanent value to your home making it an excellent selling feature when reselling your home.
With 3-5 times more cleaning power than most portable vacuum cleaners, you get a superior cleaning in less time. Since the central vacuum power unit is located in a closet, the garage or basement and you aren’t having to carry it around while you clean, it can have larger, more powerful motor. The central vacuum allows you to pick up more debris with less hassle than a portable. The 5.1" motors are the largest motors you will find in most portable vacuums. Normally they are quite smaller.
Large Dirt Collection
The large dimensions of the dirt canisters allow the vacuum to pick up a lot of debris before it needs emptied. Some central vacuum units can hold up to 48 quarts of dirt and debris. With all of this space for dirt collection it could be months or years before your dirt canister needs emptying. Depending on how often you clean and how much you sweep up with your central vacuum system will determine the length of time.
